The clouds and rain finally cleared this afternoon and I found a couple of new locations to photograph the fall foliage. I headed south from Woodstock to the town of Reading. Right on the border I saw this nice little farm tucked away on a small dirt road. I’ve driven past there many times but I hadn’t noticed it before. The light was right, so I stopped.
I like foliage reflected in water, so I headed for a pond I haven’t been to. It was nice but the foliage wasn’t good, so I drove north on a dirt road. I wasn’t seeing much until I popped out of the trees and headed up a hill. Off to the right was a spectacular view of the region. It was nearly a 180-degree view. There was a small house sitting in the perfect spot. I’d cut off my left pinky to live there. The sunrise must be incredible.
I was there over an hour waiting for the light to be right for the shot I wanted. There were lots of clouds and the shadows were bad most of the time. At one point I could see rain falling in the distant hills and the sun was shining on me. The light was constantly changing and made every picture look different.
